T-Mobile’s new Microsoft-Danger Sidekick – the Dangsoft?

So should they call this the Sidekick Manger edition, or the Dangsoft 1.0?

Or maybe just the new Sidekick. Announced today by T-Mobile and Microsoft, it’s the first product released by Sidekick developer Danger since Microsoft bought the Palo Alto company in February. Danger’s now part of Microsoft’s Premium Mobile Experiences group, or PMX.

The phone costs $149.99 with a two-year service agreement. Highlights include video capture and sharing features, Bluetooth media streaming, improved browsing and the ability to save content like Web pages to the included MicroSD memory card. You can also customize the shell, or stick with basic black:
